Serving as both a hotspot for the city's most fashionable, talked about events and a low-key escape for A-listers looking for a quiet cocktail, Manhattan's most prominent tastemakers flock to the exclusive Rose Bar. It is home to Fashion Week after parties, celebrity book launches and on any given night, world-renowned DJs spinning their custom playlists.
In addition, the lounge's intimate music showcases, known as the Rose Bar Sessions, offer guests exclusive performances from artists like Axl Rose, Dave Navarro, Rufus Wainwright and Liza Minnelli.
This grand space with soaring ceilings is like none other in the city. It features custom furniture from Oscar-nominated director Julian Schnabel, a one-of-a-kind Maarten Bass billiards table and a rotating display of bold artwork from 20th century masters like
Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Richard Prince and Damien Hirst. But the space also maintains a sense of intimacy and warmth from its solid walnut bar, a 25-foot-long tufted banquette of silk velvet, a hand-carved limestone fireplace and Douglas fir columns.
In the small alcove just off the Rose Bar, the chic Jade Bar provides a welcoming space all its own. With views of residential Lexington Avenue, velvet-upholstered seating areas, verdant walls and, like the adjacent Rose Bar, stunning works of modern art, the Jade Bar offers a calming, intimate spot for guests to enjoy coffee and breakfast at the start of their day. Later in the afternoon, both bars begin serving exotic cocktails, classic aperitifs and dishes from Maialino's Executive Chef, Nick Anderer.
